This here's a story about Billy Joe and Bobbie Sue, two college students with lots of school to do. They both wanted a college education, and this is how each paid their tuition...

She got the money, hey, You know she got away. Her degree was worthless, she’s on welfare today, Singin' go on take tax money and run... Go on, take tax money and run…
Are cops perfect? Of course not. And no one should expect them to be. But every single day, under the most difficult conditions, the police protect us from the bad guys. In other words, they do their job and they do it well. Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke makes it very clear: cops are not the problem.
The excellent PragerU video linked below describes exactly how I feel about law enforcement, and about the villains that vilify the men and women that put their lives on the line for us day in and day out.
“All he had was a cellphone,” said 10-year-old Terrell Wilson to the Sacramento City Council. “20 shots over a cellphone.”
If only it were that simple, then the outrage over the killing of Stephon Clark could be justified.
But, as usual when Black Lives Matter, it simply isn’t that simple.
Cornealious Anderson was 24 when he made an incredibly bad decision. He and a cousin used a BB gun to rob a restaurant manager on his way to deposit money at the bank. Anderson was caught, sentenced to 13 years in prison, and sent home to await instructions for reporting to prison. The instructions never came.
While I believe that people should pay their taxes (and vote for fiscally-conservative politicians who will rein in spending and lower taxes), I find it incredibly outrageous that such a meager unpaid amount would result in such a harsh penalty.
To me, this case speaks volumes about the sad state of our country.
In the wake of the Zimmerman trial, Barkley could have easily laid low and kept his opinion to himself.
He killed innocent people. He was a terrorist. He was a psychopath.
I don’t care whether he could have been medically declared insane or not. Anybody who murders innocent people as Dorner did is psychologically messed up.
Dominic Gaines’ gun turned out to be a BB gun. But that doesn’t matter.
